Create your custom print leggings
These leggings are printed and sewn in-house using our 2 piece leggings pattern which you can use yourself, when you press start design above. We use the perfect legging fabric; Lycra, to make your cut and sew leggings (you can buy just the legging fabric here). You have the option to choose from the silky and smooth Slinky Matt Lycra or shiny, slightly shimmery Lycra Soft Sheen. These custom art leggings also give you the option to choose the top stitch thread colour and to print a message or label for your brand as you wish. If you are looking for a specific size of printed leggings, then Contrado is the place. We hand make them in all sizes, including all plus size leggings to 4XL. There is no limit to your design journey.
All Over Printed Leggings
Wear your style, your way with your pair of custom leggings. Perfect for updating your wardrobe or creating your own line of designer leggings. Since we print the material, you can be sure they are all over printed, with the ink penetrating deep into the seams, as seen on our preview screen in our leggings pattern.
NB: We print a discreet barcode on internal hem of the left leg, invisible from outside, containing the unique reference, proving they are truly original and one of a kind.
Your label, your brand
If you’re looking to build a active wear brand, then your printed labels are perfect for you. Add a custom printed label to the elastic hem of your Leggings, and add your brand name, logo, or images. We print the label directly onto the lycra, in full colour, at no extra cost. Give your leggings a professional touch, with Contrado’s printed Labels.
Style it with
Great to wear as yoga leggings,for working out, partying or just fun everyday wear, your print on demand leggings will make a stylish addition to your wardrobe. We recommend styling these cut and sew leggings with a Personalised T-Shirt and the Custom Printed Bomber Jacket, to create a catwalk worthy look. Slip the bomber on when the weather turns cold or keep it cool and casual in a custom printed t-shirt and your patterned leggings when it gets warmer.
Turn inside out before washing. Iron on the reverse of the printed side. 30°c wash. Low tumble heat. Do not wring. Low heat iron. Steam safe.

Frequently asked questions:
Which Lycra fabric option would be best for creating a line of sports leggings?
You can choose between Slinky Matt Lycra or Lycra Soft Sheen to make your custom leggings online. If you are planning on creating a range of designer leggings purely for sports, then we recommend Slinky Matt Lycra. These custom legging fabrics allow you to optimise movements during exercise. They are more opaque and provides great support, which you will appreciate during exercise.
Are the leggings suitable for both men and women?
Our leggings pattern has been designed in-house to be a perfect fit for the female form. Both fabric options have enough stretch and elasticity to fit and flatter most body shapes and sizes. If you are looking to specifically design your own custom printed men's leggings, get in touch with us, via email or chat, as we are currently working on these and they should be available soon.
Do you make plus size leggings?
The simple answer is yes, because we make all of the personalised leggings to order. At Contrado, we believe creativity and design should not be limited by size. This is why we have such a wide range of sizes available for your customised leggings. Plus size leggings are something which we are passionate about, as they allow those of all shapes and sizes to be able to embrace their personal style.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Can you perfectly join two separately printed panels?
We always try to provide the utmost precision in printing and manufacturing. However, due to unavoidable stretching or movement of the fabric at the time of sewing, we can not guarantee a perfect alignment of the pattern on the seams of the garment. Generally we are accurate to 2-3mm, which is sufficient for most reasons but can pose minor problems with patterns or geometric designs.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Is it possible to print your own label?
Most of our clothing is made with a label space. You can print your label and add information about your brand. If you want to sew your own labels, we offer customizable labels of different sizes.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Why are there slight colour differences between my orders?
We work at improving our colour profiles all the time. Though rare it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight colour differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such colour variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric; natural fabrics tend to have more muted colours than their poly alternatives. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
Delivery time & Costs
We handmake your item on site, which takes on average 1-2 days. Please check individual production times which are displayed next to the item price on the product page, as this varies from product to product. In rare cases when we need to re-print an item, this may take an additional 1-2 days.
After your item has been manufactured, we ship your order and send you a dispatch confirmation via email through. Please add on the production time to the delivery time to calculate when your order will be with you. The delivery time will be visible in the basket and check-out page, where you can select between the delivery methods too.
You can then enjoy or resell your hand-made products with your very own designs.
